Progress Friday 23rd November 2012

Dear all
The sun shone through the day and the wind had dropped away enabling me to take a photo at Duffield, in pleasant conditions, that will illustrate our unique signal there for a forthcoming internal publication so I thought I would share it with you!
I have been gently challenged on my use of the word "unique" to describe our two single unit railcars. My claim was based on their regular use on all service and charter trains through the winter period which, I think, is peculiar to us?
I omitted the endeavours of the VCT from yesterday's report as they were very much present south of Idridgehay cutting and burning.
Wirksworth was fairly quiet today with continued work to complete the "Bubble Car" and further processing of Santa bookings in the Booking Hall. The next shareholders mailout is a task that also made modest progress.
The Pullman Buffet Car saw returning regulars from Severn Trent Water that have adopted us as the cafe of choice.
